  • Reviews

  • “These are some of the best brownies I have ever eaten.The whole family raved about them and ate a whole pan in one afternoon!”

  • “Excellent Brownies!I added pecans in when I made the caramel. We plan to have these often!”

  • “When I first tasted these I thought they were way too sweet for my taste. I had made them for some friends but kept part of them for my husband and myself. I kept them in the fridge and each day would eat a little bit more (I didn’t want them to be wasted) and now I think they are really wonderful. They have a different taste at room temperature than when they are cold. The friends I gave them to like them and the husband said he ate more than his share.Since I don’t have a microwave, it was time consuming to melt the chocolate and then the caramels in a double boiler so I won’t make them often but just for special occasions.Cindy”
